Basically, you can say that deactivating Wi-Fi (or disconnecting the network so that Wi-Fi can only be used for surfing and has no access to internal systems) is a proven standard method for securing the internal network.

Otherwise, it also belongs in this category:

  • Use a firewall (no, OpenWrt is usually not enough here)
  • Network segmentation (not all devices are allowed to access everything)
  • Antivirus solutions
  • Install updates as quickly as possible

  • Regular audits
  • Document all systems
  • Scan for vulnerabilities
  • Monitoring (of both devices and security events)
  • Look for a professional IT service provider, as they can usually provide entirely different resources.
